Along with fourteen other Penn State students, Kristen spent the summer of 2016 on the Penn State Global Programs faculty-led program in Besançon. She credits the program with giving her proficiency in French and introducing her to a very special part of France. She writes “Studying in a small town was a very reassuring factor while being so far from home. The safety and comfort of Besançon made studying there that much more enjoyable. My group and I were able to get to know the town for all it was worth, and by the end of our stay I truly felt as though it was our own hometown.” You can read more about here experiences here.
